  • Perhaps even more than the Cathedral, the Church of San Francesco is the most interesting religious building of Ascoli Piceno, a city that despite its modest size is very rich in monuments. The Church overlooks the scenic Piazza del Popolo with the right side, with a quite singular architecture; remarkable also the apse, simple and processed at the same time, with two twin bell towers (which, however, are visible only within a certain distance of both); the façade, which instead gives a quite narrow, is rectangular in the style of not far Abruzzo and presents a beautiful portal. The Interior is rather bare Franciscan tradition, he still makes a good impression for the size and relatively poor lighting; Don't miss the cloister, now a public walkway, which has a specific profile on TripAdvisor.

  • Suggestive Basilica, to be discovered, with all its history! I can't anticipate anything ... you have to discover it on site.

  • A beautiful church, full of history.
  • Amazing Church!
  • Ok
  • Very beautiful church facing the Piazza del Popolo in the Centre of the city. 13th century Franciscan church with three naves, with two cloisters. Very interesting and gathered the Interior adorned with stained glass Windows. Beautiful entrance portals, especially the side of Via del Trivio, with its stone columns on the sides worn at the Center for the devotion of the faithful who were, in the past, the usual scraping with metal objects to make them "play". Nice Bell Tower on the square.

  • Imposing clerical building overlooking the lounge of the city: piazza del popolo. Definitely a fascinating and beautiful monument, to visit.
